Expansion to Denver’s growing tech hub accelerates Sphere’s growth and investment in its technology.
Nashville, TN, August 20, 2020—Sphere, Powered by TrustCommerce, a leading provider of end-to-end integrated payments and security software, today announced it has opened a new office in the Denver area. Located in Westminster, this expansion represents continued growth and investment in its technology operations. The satellite office will house IT professionals who focus on software engineering, customer experience, business analysis and more.
To augment our flagship technology center in Santa Ana, California, the Denver area was a natural choice for Sphere. A growing tech hub, Denver is a top 10 market for technology talent. The location will provide geographic diversity for hiring of IT skillsets as well as availability of experienced payments industry professionals.
Sphere is a technology-forward organization; its end-to-end payment solutions enable clients to securely and flexibly process payments via multiple channels using its own proprietary applications and integrations with third-party software vendors. Further, Sphere’s comprehensive suite of security products, which includes PCI Validated Point to Point Encryption and tokenization, helps clients manage risk, reduce costs, and maintain compliance.
“The expansion into the new Denver facility demonstrates our investment into attracting top talent who will help us continue to drive our product and technology roadmap forward,” said Steve Rizzuto, Chief Executive Officer of Sphere.
Last year, Sphere hired Daryl Seaman to lead its Information Technology group with the primary objective of increasing Sphere’s capability and capacity and continuing to advance its commitment to excellence. Mr. Seaman is a 35-year veteran of the payments industry, having served in executive roles at two of the largest acquirers, First Data Corporation and TSYS.
“Choosing the Denver area was a no-brainer,” said Daryl Seaman, Chief Information Officer of Sphere. “We wanted a location with top technology talent in the payments space in the Mountain Time Zone to work closely with our operations in Santa Ana, CA and Irving, TX. Denver fit the bill perfectly and we can’t wait to further develop the team.”
Sphere has open positions in Information Technology in the Westminster and Santa Ana offices and is excited to accelerate product and technology growth with this location.
